We are starting a new
project to record the memories of our members. A trial run is being
conducted by the Officers and Board members.
Carol (Pritz) Sivesind, daughter of Garner Pritz, contacted the Society during October 2015. She started a new business venture.
Her web site is:
Carol has offered to help
record our memories. We will start collecting stories about our memories of
Berlin. Each of the Board members and Officers have been asked to contribute
a story to get the process started.
They will call Carol using her Story Keeper process or OR
call the Society to make a digital voice recording and send it to Carol OR
write their own story.
If they call Carol or make a digital recording, Carol will type the story and send a WORD copy for editing and final approval. We will collect the stories for either the MEMOS or a book. We have asked for memories of growing up, going to school, and working in Berlin. We are looking for the stories about how things have changed as a record for the younger generations.
If we think the process will work for a book project, we hope our oldest members will join the effort.
We will keep you posted on the progress here.
